Laugh, and the world laughs with you;. Weep, and you weep alone.

Interesting, if someone on a street corner is crying someone will go up and ask if they are ok. Have seen this happen on a tram, and have in fact done it myself. But if someone is laughing to themselves on a street corner I reckon people would cross over to avoid!

Yes, context matters.

The old man has a sense of mission in bringing home the shark even whilst it is being stripped away. The symbolism is about having a purpose and meaning in life. Maybe that's something Hemmingway should have remembered before blowing his brains out with the shotgun. Although, as Bukowksi has stated, when he did that, it was done with style. And style is the answer to everything.
